The Monett Cubs basketball team entered Tuesday night's Big 8 tilt looking for their second conference victory and a win over a district opponent in Carl Junction. Thirty-two minutes later, the Cubs were handed a 64-49 loss.

"It's frustrating," said Monett head coach Ty Goetz. "I know we have players who can play, and we talked about getting off to a quick start, but we didn't show the intensity need to win after tipoff."

Monett tied the game at 2-2 with 5:22 to play in the first quarter and watched as the Bulldogs responded with a 10-0 run before Travis Thompson ended the scoring deluge with two free throws. Monett trailed 15-4 after one quarter.

Two quick baskets by Carl Junction opened the second period before Monett responded. Each team traded baskets the rest of the half, and Monett trailed 39-22 heading into the break.

"We have got to learn to finish on the offensive end," said Goetz. "In the second half, we got great looks. We just had trouble getting them to go through the hoop."

Monett trailed by 24 points in the third period before going on a 7-0 run to cut the Bulldogs' advantage to 51-34 with 13 seconds to play. Carl Junction's Travis Vogt drilled a 37-foot 3-pointer to kill the Cubs' momentum and give the Bulldogs a 54-34 lead heading into the fourth period.

The Cubs whittled the lead down to 12 points at 58-46 with three minutes to play, but the Bulldogs responded with 6 straight points to end the rally.

Monett outscored Carl Junction 15-10 in the fourth quarter.

Vogt led Carl Junction in scoring with 21 points. Matt Magee added 12 points. Dustin Satterlee chipped in 10 points. Chase Mars contributed 9 points. Jordan Keller recorded 5 points and Andrew Stokes finished with 1 point.

Scoring for Monett were: Tyler Green, 19; Kyle Woods, 11; Jarred Witt, 10; Jacob Fair, 4; Tyler Webb and Travis Thompson, 2 each; and Dillon Freudenthal, 1.

Monett will host Lamar on Friday for homecoming. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
